350g Diced Prime Cornish Fish

  • 400ml Pot of Tagine Sauce
  • 200g Couscous
  • 1 x Butternut Squash
  • Coriander & Toasted Almonds for Garnish


  • Fish

  1. Cut the Butternut Squash into chunks or slices, removing the seeds, place in a roasting tray with a little olive oil and season with a sprinkle of cinnamon, sea salt and pepper. Cover tightly with foil and place into a preheated oven, at 180C, for about 30 minutes (or until the skin of the squash is soft). Remove the foil and cook for a further 10 minutes until the squash is golden and crisp.
  2. Place the Couscous into a bowl and add 150ml of boiling water, salt and pepper, a squeeze of lemon juice, if desired, and a tbsp. of olive oil. Cover and leave to stand for 5 – 10 minutes. Remove the cover and fluff the grains with a fork. (Tip: You may choose to add some chopped herbs, tomatoes or peppers and a little more olive oil).
  3. Warm the Tagine Sauce in a saucepan, slowly bring to the boil, then add the Diced Fish. Simmer gently for about 3 – 5 minutes, until fish is cooked, but not falling to pieces.
  4. To serve, spoon some couscous into your bowls, then layer the fish tagine on top, sprinkle the chopped Coriander & Toasted Almonds over. Serve with the roasted squash on the side.
